That's why Chevy incorporated the Canadian maple leaf on the vehicle's exterior. Travis Parman, Chevrolet spokesman, pointed out that this is the first time a Z06 has been available in white for the past two generations of the car. Of course, the vehicle's Arctic White paint with red fender stripe riffs off the colors of the Canadian flag.

The car is powered by a 512-horsepower LS7 V8 linked to a six-speed transmission. It has a top speed of 199 mph and sprints from zero to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds.

GM will build just 399 units of the special Vette. Guitar maker Paul Reed Smith, a Corvette racing sponsor, has also created a one-of-a-kind guitar that is a companion to the car. It is valued at $10,000.
